Oprah's Going To Sundance

| Filed under: Film FlickersOprah Winfrey

Brace yourselves, indie filmmakers. Sundance just got REAL.

The Hollywood Reporter's reporting that Oprah Winfrey is readying her jet to whisk her off to the Sundance Film Festival. Rumor has it the Big O is going to be some scouting for material to air on her new network, OWN.

Specifically, she's in the market for some documentaries and "smaller productions" to join her lineup of projects with stars like Julia Roberts.

Imagine the luck. You'd go to Sundance, just hoping someone will like your movie. Then BAM, Oprah buys it and you can now throw a sticker on the DVD cover that says "Oprah Approved."

Who could ask for anything more!

    The entertainment industry needs to WAKE up and STOP whoreing themselves out to this event. Remember how Utah and Mormons feel about gays!!! I never have ANYTHING to do w/anything that goes thru that 'crazy-state'!!! Mormons are whack-jobs…look up their crazy-ass cult….

    I'm getting damn sick of Oprah.

    Re: Chasenip – Not all of Utah feels that way. In fact, I'm from the city where Sundance is held and it is a very democratic and gay friendly town. Until you've been to Sundance and to Park City, don't judge anything. Just because the state is crazy, doesn't mean the city where the festival is held is.

    If the film or documentary is geared towards Blacks then it will have a better chance of getting picked up by Oprah. One thing she has never hidden or ashamed of is her desire help and promote her own race in addition to helping others.

    Sundance has been "real" for many years Perez. What an idiotic comment to make. Frankly, I don't give a shit what O does.

    Wonder if her (wink, wink) BFF, Gayle will be there? The two can eat each other out!!!

    ALL of Utah is a shit-hole. There is NOTHING there, that's WHY the Mormons 'settled' there. Just give the state to the crazy-ass Mormons and stop giving them any federal support before anymore of their 'poison' (like PROP-8) spreads like a sickness thru the rest of the country. U can add Texas to that short list as well.

    Re: breezybee78 – Your 'hamlet' is NOTHING except once a year when publicity-hungry celebs converge there. It's not even a fart on the map…you're welcome to keep it ALL to yourself.

    She's fabulous. The most powerful person of all time walking into a movie theatre.

    Sundance was real. Now it's going commercial. Ah, well. It doesn't hurt to give Hollywood some competition. Not at all. I wonder if this was Redford's vision.

    So glad to see how much energy you put into hate *chasenip*. You make no sense though, the man in charge of sundance in gay. Speaking of whack-jobs, look in the mirror. Do yourself a favor and focus on trying to be positive rather than bringing hate and angry towards everyone around you.
